Free agent QB Tyler Wilson said he will consider retirement if he cannot find a team by training camp.
"At this point, I’ll give this thing until August," Wilson said. "If I’ve signed with a team, I’ll continue to play and work into camp. I’m ready to go another direction. There’s life after football." Wilson said he received positive feedback following his workout at the NFL Veteran Combine in March, but he has yet to find a home. A fourth-round selection of the Raiders in 2013, Wilson has yet to play a snap in the NFL. Sat, Jul 11, 2015 08:45:00 AM

Bengals waived QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson spent three weeks as a camp arm with Cincinnati. The former Raiders fourth-round pick does have practice squad eligibility left for 2014.

Bengals signed QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson was waived by the Titans on August 6 after reportedly looking "very bad" during camp. With Jason Campbell and rookie A.J. McCarron hurting, Wilson will serve as a camp arm. He is very unlikely to crack the final roster.

Titans waived QB Tyler Wilson.

The Raiders used a fourth-round pick on Wilson in 2013, but he was so bad during practices that he was waived at final cuts. The Titans gave him a developmental shot this offseason, but he was reportedly "very bad" while splitting No. 3 reps with Zach Mettenberger.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky said second-year QB Tyler Wilson has been "very bad" in training camp.

The Raiders' fourth-round pick last season, Wilson could not beat out UDFA Matt McGloin and was waived in November. He latched on with the Titans, but it seems unlikely he will beat out rookie Zach Mettenberger for the No. 3 job.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he's "intrigued" by second-year QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the 112th overall pick of the Raiders last year, was waived in November and later signed by the Titans in December. He doesn't have a big arm or great accuracy, but Wilson has a good feel for the pocket. Wilson was a massive flop in Oakland and is a long shot to be any higher than No. 3 in Tennessee.

Titans signed QB Tyler Wilson, formerly of the Raiders.

The Titans likely gave Wilson a two- or three-year deal and will carry him on their offseason roster. Wilson was the 112th overall pick in April's draft. He wound up getting beaten out in the preseason by UDFA Matt McGloin.

Raiders waived QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the No. 112 overall pick in April's draft, has been a colossal flop. He'll likely revert back to the practice squad once he clears waivers.
Wed, Nov 27, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Raiders promoted QB Tyler Wilson from their practice squad.

With Terrelle Pryor (knee) sidelined, Wilson will serve as Matt McGloin's backup this week. The 112th overall pick in April's draft has spent the entire season on the Raiders practice squad.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Raiders signed QB Tyler Wilson to the practice squad.

Wilson was cut on Sunday after failing to beat out UDFA Matt McGloin for No. 3 duties behind Terrelle Pryor and Matt Flynn. The 112th overall pick in April's draft, it was somewhat surprising he cleared waivers.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 07:13:00 PM

Raiders waived QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the 112th overall pick in April's draft, struggled with the mental side of the game in Raiders camp and fell behind undrafted free agent Matt McGloin. GM Reggie McKenzie is keeping McGloin, Matt Flynn, and Terrelle Pryor on the roster at quarterback.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 02:09:00 PM

Tyler Wilson hasn't gotten a single snap in either of the last two preseason games.

Wilson has fallen well behind undrafted free agent and former Penn State walk-on Matt McGloin for the No. 3 job. His big chance comes Thursday night, as he'll finally get extended preseason action. Wilson's roster spot is not secure despite his fourth-round pick status.
Thu, Aug 29, 2013 09:57:00 AM

ESPN AFC West blogger Bill Williamson calls Raiders QB Tyler Wilson the "most disappointing rookie" in the division.

Per Williamson, it appears Wilson is "falling further behind the Raiders' quarterback pack every day." Wilson fell behind UDFA Matt McGloin earlier this month, and has struggled mightily with the mental side of the game. Wilson was 3-of-6 for 28 yards in last week's preseason opener. At least so far, the Raiders have perhaps the weakest draft class in the league. That's a major problem, as they easily have the least impressive collection of veterans.
Wed, Aug 14, 2013 01:45:00 PM

Fourth-round QB Tyler Wilson has fallen to fourth on the Raiders' depth chart.

Wilson is behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and UDFA Matt McGloin. He's barely getting any reps at practice now. "Well, I think he's got the physical tools," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think he's behind from a mental part of the game, and that's where he's got to continue to work to improve." In terms of long-term development, Wilson still has a higher ceiling than McGloin. The game's just moving too fast for him right now.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 12:38:00 PM

Raiders coach Dennis Allen acknowledged Sunday rookie Tyler Wilson is losing camp reps because he's "behind from a mental standpoint."

Allen did say he believes Wilson has "all the physical tools," but he's been losing practice time to UDFA Matt McGloin. Matt Flynn is entrenched as Oakland's starter, and Terrelle Pryor has all but locked up primary backup duties. Wilson could still make a run at the No. 2 job with a strong preseason performance.
